A Broken Heart

43 Comments

There are three things I know about a broken heart.  The first is it will heal.  The second is it will heal.  The third is it will heal.

Written for the weekend Trifextra challenge:  This weekend we are asking you to play around with the following quote:

Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind. –Henry James

We want you to follow the same general structure of the above quote.  Feel free to change the subject–tell us what’s important about coffee or houseplants or whatever you’d like.  Or else change up the modifier–instead of telling us what’s important, tell us what’s sexy or overrated or pernicious.  Your last three lines should closely echo James’s, giving us the same answer three times. – See more at: http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/#sthash.7JTIHbF7.dpuf

  1. Let me enlighten you then. Four: it sucks. Five: it hurts like hell. Six: It sucks even more. Seven: see six. Eight: I need a drink.

  2. It’s true. Even though it feels as if all of the bones in your chest have cracked into a thousand little pieces, one day you wake up and realize it doesn’t hurt so much anymore. Sigh. Thanks for linking up.

  4. I never know the right words to offer someone going suffering a broken heart, so all I ever wish for them is that it heals fast. Nice work with the prompt.
